Seller's description

As a contribution to the "International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design" held by the New York Museum of Modern Art in 1948, Charles and Ray Eames submitted a chair with a one-piece, body-shaped seat made of metal, the base of which could be variably replaced. The concept was progressive at a time when chairs mainly consisted of a seat, a backrest and fixed legs. Although the design was awarded second place, series production was not suitable due to its expensive materials. While looking for an alternative material that was malleable, yet robust and suitable for industrial processing, the Eames came across polyester resin, a new material for the furniture industry, which was reinforced with fiberglass fibers. Fiberglass chairs came onto the market as early as 1950 and quickly became very popular due to their variability and particular longevity. These are chairs from the Vitra re-edition. The company brought the fiberglass shells back onto the market in 2018 after a break of around 20 years. This classic Eames Fiberglass Side Chair has a four-legged wire base (DSR, new height) from Vitra and is in good to very good condition. A different base frame is possible on request.
